While, yes, there is brief mention from Paul in his letters in the New Testament of keeping watch of your doctrine…there was no call for the church to start executing people if they went against what the church believed…and yet…that’s exactly what we did.

The Bankrupt Theology of the Morality Gospel

There has long been a war between Christians over law vs. grace. But the war started long before our little religion ever started.
